Marco Polo Airport represents a major regional infrastructure, which has witnessed relevant growth in the last years due to the introduction of new routes to North America and the Middle East. Located within the Venetian Lagoon, less than 7 km from Piazza San Marco, the VCE Airport is an unequaled place not only from a historical point of view but also for its exclusive panorama. Safety and security, infrastructure capacity consistent with demand, adequate level of services, environmental and economical sustainability, and harmonious environmental integration are the key factors for the plan’s success that ranks among the top European benchmarks.
The VCE terminal, therefore, has been conceived to represent a prestigious city gateway, with innovative materials and a premium retail offer. The new design will provide the Airport with an extended capacity of 20 million passengers a year while responding to the Lagoon’s very fragile ecosystem and Venice’s historical centre.
